    A basic constituent part of a design is called a(n) ___.

    • A.

      Symbol

    • B.

      Element

      Color

    • D.

      Pictograph

    Correct Answer
    B. Element
    Explanation
    In design, a basic constituent part is referred to as an "element." Elements are the building blocks that make up a design, such as lines, shapes, textures, and forms. They are combined and arranged to create a visually appealing composition. Symbols, colors, and pictographs are also important in design, but they are not specifically referred to as constituent parts. Therefore, the correct answer is "element."

      ___ is ymmetry about a central axis.

    • A.

      Radial symmetry

    • B.

      Asymmetry

    • C.

      Bilateral symmetry

    • D.

      Orbital symmetry

    Correct Answer
    A. Radial symmetry
    Explanation
    Radial symmetry is the correct answer because it refers to an arrangement where the body parts of an organism are arranged around a central axis, like the spokes of a wheel. This type of symmetry can be observed in organisms such as starfish or jellyfish, where any plane passing through the central axis will divide the organism into identical halves. Asymmetry refers to the absence of symmetry, bilateral symmetry refers to a body plan divided into left and right halves, and orbital symmetry is not a recognized type of symmetry.

      Pattern

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Rhythm
    Explanation
    A regularly recurring sequence of events or actions is called rhythm. Rhythm refers to the pattern of beats or movements that occur in a predictable and consistent manner. It can be found in various aspects of life such as music, dance, poetry, and even in the natural world. Rhythm provides a sense of order and structure, creating a harmonious flow and allowing for synchronization and coordination.

    An engineer is designing a part  for an boat. The part has a volume of 35.6 cubic inches. The manufacturer in China uses metric equipment. What measurement should the manufacturer use?

    • A.

      35.6 cubic inches

    • B.

      35.6 cubic centimeters

    • C.

      583.4 cubic centimeters

    • D.

      90.4 cubic centimeters

    Correct Answer
    C. 583.4 cubic centimeters
    Explanation
    The manufacturer in China should use the measurement of 583.4 cubic centimeters. Since the engineer is designing the part in cubic inches, the manufacturer needs to convert this measurement to cubic centimeters because they use metric equipment. To convert cubic inches to cubic centimeters, you multiply the measurement by the conversion factor of 16.387. Therefore, 35.6 cubic inches multiplied by 16.387 equals 583.4 cubic centimeters.

    As shown in the table below, the cost of renting a car depends on the number of miles driven.  What is the cost if a rental car is driven 75 miles?

    • A.

      $68.75

    • B.

      $65.00

    • C.

      $67.50

    • D.

      $70.25

    Correct Answer
    A. $68.75
    Explanation
    Based on the information given in the table, the cost of renting a car depends on the number of miles driven. Since the question states that the car is driven 75 miles, we need to find the corresponding cost. Looking at the options, the closest cost to 75 miles is $68.75, which is the correct answer.

    A. Perspective
    Explanation
    The sketch type shown in the image is perspective. Perspective sketches are drawn to represent three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface, giving the illusion of depth and distance. This type of sketch uses vanishing points and converging lines to create a realistic representation of an object or scene. In the given image, the sketch displays depth and a sense of distance, indicating that it is a perspective sketch.
